This would be reinforced, he said, by drivers' personal liability for any excess mileage penalties on their personal motoring scheme contract. The danger, however, is that some drivers will find an incentive to clock up extra business miles to maximise their mileage allowance in order to finance their personal motoring schemes.
But Ashman said: 'Because drivers would own the car through a PCP scheme, they would want to protect the equity invested in the vehicle. They would consider other options when looking at business travel to keep their car mileage down. They might take the train to London, rather than drive, because they would not be trying to increase their business mileage to a certain level.'
